NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Applicant intends to alter the streambed by removing sediment and vegetation on Piru Creek at the SR-126 Bridge. Work will be conducted on the west banks and outside of the active channel area. Sediment will be removed in between the bridge pilings and the outer perimeter areas to a depth of the current active channel grade. On the downstream portion of the excavations, a channel will be created to link the excavated area to the main channel in the event that a large storm event results in the entrapment of aquatic organisms. The staging and spoil area will be located to the west of the creek on a private parcel outside of the alluvial terrace. An access road will be created on the north side of the bridge. The total amount of vegetation to be removed or disturbed will be 1.24 acres and the total vegetation, sediment removal and access areas will consist of 2.5 acres.
